University of Auckland researchers have proposed a new method for finding Earth-like planets in our galaxy and they anticipate that the number will be on the order of 100 billion. The research supports an earlier estimate based on extrapolations of Kepler data. The new research uses a technique called gravitational microlensing, currently used by a
